Playing with samples is fun. Zoning out while you play with said samples is, perhaps unsurprisingly, also fun.

I can confirm it's fun to zone out while listening also.

The first sounds took me straight to early 90s lucasfilm games soundtrack sounds. I love the kick's sound. Very tight. The lead lines from 0:55 are simple and do a good job of developing the atmosphere of the track.

Damn, that shape of that main synth sample is cool as hell.  Very chill.

Chilling out listening to the samples is also good fun.

Fun pad sound. The guitar semi-pluck is a cool lead tone that blends the tones together. I get a lo-fi feel from this, though I can also hear that the instruments aren't made to sound lo-fi. You're tricking my brain!

cute little track. The elements work very well together.

Nice chord progression from that initial pad synth.  The drums have a nice laid back groove to them too.  I agree with Anon_Buster.  It's got a lo-fi feel to it but NOT also smile  Well done!

Ah, yes, this person is chilling out. Nice flow. The guitar line feels good good. Zoning out is the best.

The lead line is a single guitar note that I fiddled around with. It kind of reminded me of Boards of Canada so I threw it in there as the lead. smile

Thank you! I find keeping these kinds of loops interesting is quite difficult, so I'm glad you liked it.

I intend to do much more of this in the future, too. Thanks for listening!

I think I'm very influenced by the lo-fi style so I sometimes bring it in where it isn't invited. I'm glad that on this occasion it works for the most part though!

Thank you! The initial pad synth was where it all started.

Zoning out is great! I just have to watch out sometimes that I don't lose the track when I do. I have a bad habit of adding too much stuff when I'm zoning out and then coming back later and being like "what is all this mess?"

Dig that multilayered clap sound and kinda guitar tone?

Zoning out and getting lost in the moment is the best.  smile
